Success Stories


Champions of Change: A National Symposium on Improving Health Care


Champions of Change




Champions of Change: A National Symposium on Improving Health Care served as the culmination of a national awareness campaign for the PBS series, Remaking American Medicine (RAM).

Devillier created and organized the entire symposium, which was underwritten by the Amgen Foundation.  Devillier arranged for the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation to serve as host, recruited keynote speakers, enlisted nationally recognized health care journalists to serve as panel moderators, promoted the event, supervised the logistics and facilitated a Webcast and a program broadcast to the PBS system.
